The print output on thermal paper is obtained through the process of heat transfer applied through the printer head onto the substrate (paper) that has thermal coating.

They need to source customized size printing rolls for POS billing from thermal paper rolls manufacturers who don’t use BPA coating on the thermal paper they produce.
